Christ’s College is a Private School in Christchurch, New Zealand. It is possibly one of the last few schools in this country which is a young men’s only school. There has been a tendency for some of the once Single-Sex schools to become co-educational once students reach Year 12-13. This is possibly due to the changing and challenging times we face, where equality has really been pushed in our faces, along with discrimination. Personally I think things should be left alone. Yes it’s good for young men and women to come together at some point, but maybe keep these schools that have been Single-Sex for many years exactly as they are. It’s been proven that single-sex schools perform better educationally than co-educational. As it is; many students have left Christ’s College and gone on to great and wonderful careers in business and sports. #christscollegenz#christscollegechristchurchnz#christchurch#christchurchnz#newzealand#newzealandeducation#newzealandschool#privateeducation#privateschool#historicarchitecture#historicschool#singlesexeducation
Art Deco love! 💕
Thank you to my friends for stopping the car before I even see the building because they know I'll want to get out and take pictures.
The Eleanor McMain Secondary School designed by E. A. Christy and built in 1932.
Built in 1878, this building was originally a school and later served as the parish hall for St. Paul's Lutheran Church. From the book "History of the Town of Clarence": "St. Paul's congregation supported its own German school. At times there were as many as 100 pupils enrolled. The pastor served as school teacher and for this was paid $1 extra per day. ... Except for one afternoon English class, all lessons were heard in German. In 1918, when the United States went to war with Germany, the congregation at Wolcottsburg was asked to close its school, which it did." The church still owns it, but sadly it's not in use anymore and is deteriorating.

The Bostick Female Academy was built between 1891 and 1893. It was funded by Dr. Jonathan Bostick who wanted to replace the Porter Female Academy that burned during the Civil War. The first session was held in 1893, and it later served as the Triune Public School from about 1904 to 1949. Built in the late Victorian architectural style, this building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. It is now a private residence. —

The student body in front of George Washington Carver High School near Fourth and Grant streets in 1942. Known for strong academics and quality athletic programs, the segregated high school opened in 1926 and closed in 1954. The building and several others on the campus still stand today (swipe left). City and community efforts have been underway for several years to preserve the historic site, renamed The George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center. #tbt#blackhistorymonth#PHX#oldschool#segregatedschools#georgewashingtoncarver#historicschool
And we’re back. I’ve got a lot of history queued up. Let’s do this!
This plaque is all that remains of Longfellow Elementary School. Located at 562 Grove Street, the school was designed by William Waters and built in 1914. Razed for a Mercy Medical Center parking lot in 1981.
Named after Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, the famous poet. There is a bronze bust of him in the Reading Room at the library that used to be displayed in the school.
If you or a family member attended this school check out the Longfellow Elementary School Of Oshkosh, WI Facebook group, where people share class photos and memories. Many reflect fondly on the ice rink, summer day camp, spring festival and overall beauty of the school (especially the hardwood floors)!
